(To the tune of "This Old Man")

This Be the Verse
By Philip Larkin

They fark you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were farked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.

"They said they (the seller) hadn't broken the law and there was nothing they could about it - even though it is morally wrong." While I disapprove of swearing in front of children, please keep your morals to yourself. Just because you or I might find it morally wrong does not mean that our standard applies to everyone else.

Mock26: While I disapprove of swearing in front of children


Why? I have never understood why only some synonyms or words are "bad" while there are 50 million synonyms for those SAME WORDS that are "ok". It makes no logical sense whatsoever. Sh*t - 4 letters, one syllable, "bad". Crap - 4 letters, one syllable, "fine". Etc. It's just stupid. We shouldn't teach children to be irrational and stupid.

If it was indeed a children's toy being sold at a christmas festival as the article states, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the toy to be clear of any questionable moral content.

I know, right? It's almost as if different words have subtly different context and meaning.

As another example, the following words could be used interchangeably:

African American - 15 letters (16 with the space), 7 syllables
N*gger - 6 letters, 2 syllables

What shocked me was the quality of the writing. The dad's 21, the niece is "also one" but we have no information on the age of the mother or child. I'm assuming the kid is one if here cousin is "also one".

It's easier to not let them get into the habit rather than break the habit.

As for why it can be bad....that's the way society is. Try swearing up a storm in court and let us all know how that works out for you, or most job interviews. Running for office?

We live in a largely conservative country, and if one swears habitually, it can negatively impact their lives.

Note, I'm all for swearing, but there's a time and place for everything. Every time it's overused because someone simply think's it's cool, it devalues the meaning for when it's really apt, it becomes mundane, ceases to be an expletive.

Great, more terrible logic. Let's make an accepted name for people something that doesn't accurately describe the vast majority of them....in order to replace a non-accepted name that doesn't accurately describe the vast majority of them. Sounds perfectly rational. Also, what's the "subtly different context and meaning" between crap and shiat? Thorough explanation, please.

So I should perpetuate bad logic simply because most people accept it? That is, in and of itself, illogical. Sorry, dude. I'll speak against poor logic in all its forms. You do what you like. If I get in trouble for "swearing" in court, I'll ask for a citation of the law(s) against it, then the rational basis for disallowing it. I'm sure it won't work out well for me, but bowing to bad logic just because of the potential consequences to myself is cowardice, and I'm no coward.

Mother: All right. Now, are you ready to tell me where you heard that word?
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master. But, I chickened out and said the first name that came to mind.
Ralphie: Schwartz!

It's not about logic either way, we're not teaching math or science here. It is more relative to meeting some low-bar minimum of human decency out of consideration for others.

I prefer a society where swearing is somewhat ill favored in a professional setting. It helps point out who the dullards and inconsiderate cretins are so I know who to avoid.

Pista: So she should call all her friends & get them to put the toy in singing mode & play it over & over. It then ceases to be an expletive & problem solved.

As to the specifics of the article, and being on fark(more akin to a bar than anything professional...), she's a dumb farking twat. Devastation is hearing your child just died, not hearing a curse word. She tripped over that low bar and is now causing more strife than the word ever rationally should..

That's the balance that the low bar provides. Weeds out another unsavory character flaw, her being a pompous etiquette zealot.
